  5. Ira Woodward says:

    OK so I’m a little confused. Is the current incarnation of the living room basically a poetry reading? Or is there still an element of a writer’s group? To reveal my cards, I am looking for a writer’s group to attend.


  6. Splabman says:

    Ira, keep looking. The last Living Room (a writer’s critique circle) ended last June.

    Good luck,
